There is a growing recognition that Australia’s drug policies are not working, and it is young Australians who are most likely to be affected. Young people are more likely to develop serious health, social or legal problems from drug use, and can experience severe criminal justice sanctions with life changing impacts through to adulthood.
Contribute to a national conversation, Wednesday 7 May, on young people and drugs – why are Australia’s drug policies not working, and how can we make them better for young people?
This public lecture is co-presented with Australia21 and the Ted Noffs Foundation.

While the views presented by speakers within the Hawke Centre public program are their own and are not necessarily those of either the University of South Australia or The Hawke Centre, they are presented in the interest of open debate and discussion in the community and reflect our themes of: strengthening our democracy – valuing our diversity – and building our future.
